Researchers have made an unusual discovery. They've found two supermassive black holes in Markarian 231, which is the nearest quasar to Earth.
With the help of data from the Subaru Strategic Program with Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC), researchers are getting a closer look at DOGs (Dust Obscured Galaxies).
NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory has spotted something startling. It's identified the smallest supermassive black hole ever detect in the center of a galaxy.
Astronomers may have uncovered a unique process for how the universe's largest elliptical galaxies continue making stars long after their peak years of star birth.
Scientists may have uncovered new information about the diet of black holes.
Scientists have uncovered a spectacular flare from a black hole. The pulse of high-energy light produced by the black hole may tell scientists a bit more about the galaxy where it resides.
Scientists have discovered a massive black hole that simply outgrew its galaxy. The super-sized black hole actually grew far faster than its host galaxy, which may reveal a bit more about the evolution of these objects.
A team of astronomers have watched a previously dormant black hole wake up in a dramatic display. They've seen material fall into the black hole for the first time in perhaps millions of years.
Scientists have discovered evidence for a large population of hidden supermassive black holes in the universe. The findings could be huge for better understanding black holes in general.
The universe may be far less crowded than we thought. Scientists have created a new theory that reduces the estimated number of the most distant galaxies in the universe by 10 to 100 times.
Researchers have uncovered unexpectedly hungry little black hole monsters.
